You have a car.

It is fully working and therefore classified as a car.

You take the wheels off, but the change is not permanent, so it's still classified as a car. You can always put the wheels back on.

You run your car over with a steamroller; it can no longer ever work as a car again, so it's no longer classified as a car.

Does that help? I'm not having a good analogy day.
